Blogger Love: Sanctuary

I wanted to share with you all, my friend, Sally's (that's her "American" name) fashion & style blog; Sanctuary.  We met last year in the Fashion program, but now she's living in LA.  She's an amazing person and I wish we had more time to chill when she was living in Hawaii, but we've kept in touch and now I have a place to crash if I'm ever in LA. haha.... Let's all get to know "Miss Una". :) 

Tell us a little about yourself
My name is Uugantsetseg. I know it sounds so long and complicated to read. So please just call me Una. My name means first flower, because I'm first child in my family. I'm 23 years old, born and raised in Mongolia. Yes I'm 100% Mongolian. Now I'm currently living in Los Angeles, I moved here 4 months ago. I used to live in Hawaii for couple years before that I lived in Chicago for almost a year.

I'm living with my boyfriend. He is in field of music industry. He is going to school for it now. One of the great things about my bf is that he loves fashion. He supports me a lot when I start a blog. Now he is the who takes my pictures. Before he didn't really like to take pictures. Now he is getting real good which is awesome.

I have many hobbies. I love everything about fashion. I love photography(I'm not good at it, but I'm learning),shopping, eating, seeing other people's blog, fashion magazines, movies, reading horror books, Facebook-ing, talking to my mom on the phone (because she is in Mongolia), buying gifts for my little siblings, drawing, doing all types of designs on nail, seeing my friends, going to beach, jet skiing and DIYing.

What inspired you to start at blog?
I'm so blessed that went to school for few semesters and met Sharon. Sharon inspires me a lot. I'm so happy that I met you Sharon :) She is one great fashionistas in Hawaii. No one is like here. People just wear t shirt, shorts and slippers all the time. Also there is one blogger in LA inspired me to have a fashion blog. She is a YouTube beauty guru. She also has a fashion blog. Few months ago I went to Fashions night out in LA in Beverly Center. I met so many stylish girls, designers, and people who are in fashion industry. Most of them have fashion blogs. So all of the these things made to me think that I should get a blog. So I’ve decided to get one since I love fashion and I looove to dress up.

What is your favorite thing to do in LA?
I have been in LA for only 4 months, so I don't really know that much places. So for now I love blogging since my blog is brand new. I'm enjoying every single thing of it. The fun part is the photo shoots. Another cool thing about LA is shopping. In every store you have tons of choices. Not only brand stores, but there are cutest fashion boutiques, designer sample sales and of course Santee Alley. I've realized that I was spending a lot for shopping when I wasn't in LA. Since I'm in LA there are so many affordable, but the most stylish clothes I can shop for.

Do you work? Go to School?
I'm on vacation now. School will start in few months. I'm majoring in Fashion designing which I'm passionate about. I can't wait to have more exciting times in school. Also I work in Japanese restaurant for part time in Studio City. I'm a cashier and waitress.

Who are your favorite Designers?
My favorite designers are Alexander McQueen, Max Azria from BCBG, Christian Louboutin, Jeffrey Campbell, DonatelaVersace, Stella McCartney, Givenchy and Marc Jacobs.

Describe your personal style.
I would describe my personal style as: OMG! It’s so hard. I never described my style before. But normally it's quite fierce but still feminine. But I like to wear things that are kinda simple but still unique, little bit of romantic, classy, chic and love to wear heels. Also I love fierce or sassy looks. Sometimes I like things that are rock & roll styled but still girly. I love gladiator sandals, thigh high boots, dresses, blazers, lots of colours, leggings, leather, fur, skinny jeans and fringe.

What are your favorite trend(s) of the moment?
At the moment, favorite trends are color block, chiffon blouses and ankle booties (the comfy ones). When I go shop nowadays I always look for something chiffon such as chiffon tops, dresses, and skirts.

Thanks, love for a great Q&A... Isn't Sally a sweetheart?  She's a totally down to earth girl.  And I love that we share the same passion for Jeffrey Campbell's and spicy food! Definitely my kind of girl. :)  I miss her tons and hopefully will be able to visit her in LA one day soon.  Hope you all are having a great Monday!  I'm so excited that it's a 3 day work week and I get a small break from classes too. It will still be a busy week, but I feel like I'll have a little more time to breathe.  Ciao.

Love, S
